Firslty, I dont like ABit (dunno why)

and your answer for double digit = it gives the POST code. like in systems you get post error messages etc in terms of beeps. but this gives in terms of Alphabes and digits.

and third eye gives you this digital monitor with it to place over casing, to monitor things, see POST codes etc.

If you don't know why...then how can you not like them?

Besides that..Blind arrow is right on the spot. It's merely for help troubleshooting your system in the event your hardware gives you probs

i have the third eye, that little monitor does actually come in handy when you run into problems.
